Almost every day we receive calls from growers who tell us their rubber gauge wheel tires have failed, sometimes within only one year of installation of new tires, especially when no-tilling into short soybean stubble.
If you currently have 3″ narrow gauge wheels supplied by John Deere, Carlisle, Pro-Mag, Shoup or Ridgeland Manufacturing, then our 3″ urethane tire will mount on your centers. However if your running the wide 4″ or 4 1/2″ gauge wheels, these narrow gauge wheel tires will NOT fit.
Our urethane gauge wheel tires are very abrasion resistant, in fact ASTM D-1938 lab testing has shown our urethane gauge wheel tires last around 7 times longer than rubber tires. Field testing has confirmed similar increases in performance. For example, we have growers who didn’t make it through the first season with their rubber gauge wheel tires, so they purchased our urethane gauge wheel tires and have ran them for 5-6 years (in similar conditions) without failure.
